Abstract

This thesis, to a certain extent, demonstrates that innovation under uncertainty is performed with consideration for a link between past and future. It is carried in an incremental, rhythmic/sensorial manner with prime emphasis on achieving resourceful solutions within team effort, no matter if these lie inside or outside the organizational boundaries. Ultimately and crucial for the field, it is the realization that innovation is not an end in itself, or a detached temporary project from the organization´s life.
